Beach Cities Cycling Club Newsletter


Beach Cities Cycling Club Newsletter

March 20, 2017 Edition

WELCOME TO WILD APRICOT!!!

We've moved the weekly newsletter production

from MailChimp to Wild Apricot.

This newsletter is the first using the WA

platform.

As with all things new, there will be some kinks

to work out. Let us know what you think!

Tuesday at Will Rodgers State Park

Thus far the new website & club membership is working well. In the process of making this change we discovered several members whose email address had been incorrectly recorded, thus have not been receiving club communications, including newsletters, apologies to all concerned. Be aware, with the new database, each member controls their own contact information, if your email address, phone number, or home address changes, you have the ability update this information.

This week we welcome Kristin Nguyen & Corey Moore, member number 851 & 852. The club currently has 373 active members. Renewal notices are sent out 30 days prior to due date, with a reminder sent 14 days prior and on the due date, if not renewed beforehand.

If you are overdue, please renew today!
